Tullichettle was built in the 1780's as a ministers house - a Manse - with a courtyard at the back and a row of outbuildings and a bothy. Once with horses on the ground floor and hay and grooms' quarters above, The Bothy is now converted into a charming holiday cottage for four.
It is just 2 miles from Comrie, a traditional and lively village where you will find a thriving and welcoming local community, an easy drive or walk to shops, pubs and places to eat.
Tullichettle lies in the rural Carse (flat land) of Comrie to the south of the River Earn and of the River Lednock and Glen Lednock. It is an excellent base for expeditions by car touring Perthshire and beyond. But in fact this area close by has some interesting and unusual historical attractions: The Earthquake House, one of the earliest seismological stations in Britain (1874), and the Deil's Cauldron waterfall, ancient burial mounds, hill forts, standing stones and stone circles. The Romans built an important fort at Comrie and there's even a standing stone on the Roman road at the entrance of the drive to The Bothy.
There are lovely walks in the wood just across the lawn, and in the immediate vicinity there are waymarked paths for longer treks. The Bothy has an enclosed garden (children and dogs are very welcome) and views across fields to the Aberuchill hills ( top of the page). It is quiet and peaceful - Tullichettle is Gaelic for 'place of peace'.
Camilla Jauncey lives in the main house, her home for over 35 years, and she offers a very friendly welcome to all who stay in The Bothy.
